TBA Executive Director
Bradley J. Lagusch
Bradley J. Lagusch is the Toledo Bar Association’s 11th executive director, following interim executive director Trish Branam who served January to June 2016, and previously from 2001 to 2012.
Mr. Lagusch, of Perrysburg, Ohio, brings significant depth in bar association management from nearly 20 years of experience at the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA). His experience at the OSBA includes serving as Marketing Manager and Director of Marketing. He also served as the Director of Marketing and Membership for the Ohio Insurance Agents Association.
His tenure at the OSBA allowed Mr. Lagusch to work with many Toledo attorneys who served on the board. “One of the things that attracted me to the position at the Toledo Bar was the ‘Toledo Way’ which I experienced when working with OSBA board members from Toledo over the years,” said Mr. Lagusch. Toledo attorneys are renowned throughout the state and take pride in their culture of professionalism and collegiality that they refer to as the “Toledo Way.”
“Brad Lagusch will lead this historic association into a bright future,” said Toledo Bar Association Past President Michelle Kranz. “He understands Toledo legal traditions but will bring his energy and commitment to member services, innovative programing and community involvement to his new role. His significant experience in strategic planning and marketing, plus his analytic and management skills, impressed the Search Committee and the Toledo Bar’s Board of Directors.”
Mr. Lagusch is a 1993 graduate of Muskingum College and holds a Master in Business Administration from Franklin University in Columbus, Ohio. He is a member of the American Marketing Association and the Ohio Society of Association Executives. He currently serves as treasurer of the Consortium of Metropolitan Bar Associations.
